Divine Connection wins MTV Desi Beats

Nagaland’s Christian rock outfit Divine Connection has won MTV’s Kurkure Desi Beats Rock.

The band has won a one-year contract to produce an album with T-Series and a music video on MTV. The band, fronted by bassist Mhathung Odyuo and Obed Kath, guitarist Lichen Kichu and Drummer Bendang Kichu, has also been gifted a set of musical instruments including high-end guitars and equipments by global guitar leader Gibson. Divine Connection beat formidable competition in the Top-10 from rock bands Kaivalya, Guwahati rockers Axis, Bhopal outfit Joshish and West Bengal’s progressive rock group Down Syndrome to shatter the 13-episode series.

Formed from the ashes of Oleander, an emergent popular rock group of the 90s in Nagaland, Divine Connection’s achievement remain a standard for a state still struggling to drive a music-based entertainment and tourism industry. The band’s first crack at the circuit was winning the first runner-up prize of the now National Hornbill Rock Contest in 2006. Composer Pritam and lead guitarist of popular fusion rock band Indian Ocean Rahul Ram judged the performances of the bands
